It works because the whole thing is very light-hearted and silly.
27 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Rotisserie Baseball is not the sort of topic you'd expect from a "30 for 30" documentary. After all, no real athletes are involved--just a bunch of folks at home pretending to be owners of their own ball team. However, I am thrilled at this episode for two main reasons. First, it explained how the game worked--and I had no idea. Second, it was VERY silly and light-hearted and never took itself very seriously. In fact, it's one of the best of the "30 for 30" films because it's so much fun. Using amazingly cool graphics, wonderful recreations (I loved the one where the founders of Rotisserie Baseball are all dressed like Colonial founding fathers) and its ability to laugh at itself--it's a truly wonderful film from start to finish.
